Opossum

Last night my mom was walking our dog, Io, and was most unfortunate to come across an opossum. You know those big rats that hang upside-down from trees. Anyway Io caught it and my mom actually though it was dead….it was not. After Io released it my mom took her home.

It was gone by the time my mom returned to dispose of it. These animals are the creepiest things you will ever see and yet they are fascinating. Playing dead is a rare defense mechanism and one that I consider invaluable.

I really don’t have much to blog about today but feel bad because I was playing dead for the last 2 weeks. Toodles!
